one of my favorite things about this industry is the people. while many a creative field can be intimidating and cut-throat, I've always found the photography world to be full of people figuring things out together and not afraid of sharing their secrets. I meet with a fantastic group of seriously talented photo gals on a regular basis to share ideas, talk out frustrations, worry about our tax preparations. for all intensive purposes we are each other's immediate competition. but that doesn't stop us from grabbing drinks and swapping referrals and it makes me so proud. one of these fine gals, sarina cross, moved to los angeles from new york just a few months after we transplanted from ohio and a few weeks after meeting we set up a time to step out in the sunshine and in front of each other's lens for updated west coast portraits. and so, in a second act of vulnerability, i'm sharing some of my favorites (and one less flattering example of how my insides feel when I'm getting my picture taken, see if you can spot it.) i shared my images of the lovely sarina here.
I recently had the pleasure of getting to know Meg from She and I Photography during a One-On-One shoot in German Village. Meg is a talented and super fun photographer here in Columbus - you'd love her. Here are few images of our sweet couple, Ashley and Andrew.
One-on-One Mentor Sessions are two hours; we sip coffee and chat for one -- chatting about technical aspects of shooting, things to keep in mind when directing couples, how to work efficiently and creatively, etc. Then we have a real-life couple join us so we can practice everything we've just talked about. It's a fun, laid-back way to hone your already mad skills! If you're interested in setting up a One-on-One session, please email me via the contact page for rates and availability.
